Rev. Dr. Arthur T. Jones is the founder of Bible-Based Fellowship, Inc. A Bible expositor and preacher par excellence. Dr. Jones’ expansive catalog of sermons, teachings, and published literary work speak to specific spiritual foundations needed to combat life’s harsh realities.

He studied under and was mentored by Dr. Jeremiah A. Wright, Molefi Asanti, and Cornell West at United Theological Seminary in Dayton, Ohio. Ultimately, he would study at both Harvard and Oxford Universities. Professionally, while studying at St. Petersburg Junior College in 1967, Dr. Jones was recruited by IBM Corporation, and thus commenced a brilliant 24½-year career.
